Today, the Bay Area’s largest source of smog forming emissions – over 60% – comes from mobile sources like cars, trucks, buses and construction equipment. The number of mobile sources will rise considerably along with expected population growth.

As part of the Spare the Air program, we ask Bay Area residents to reduce pollution by making clean air choices every day. From walking and biking more often, to reducing energy consumption in the home or making “green” consumer purchases, there are a multitude of ways people can make easy, daily decisions that will improve air quality.
On these pages, the Air District provides detailed information and useful links to assist Bay Area residents in making their everyday “clean air choices.”
The Winter Spare the Air Season is in effect from November through the end of February 28. The Winter Spare the Air program notifies residents when particulate matter levels are anticipated to be unhealthy. On these high pollution days, the Air District will issue a Winter Spare the Air Alert which prohibits wood burning throughout the Bay Area.
Within the Winter Spare the Air section of the Spare the Air website, residents can find information on the health effects of particulate matter, as well as detailed information about the Wood Burning Regulation and its compliance requirements.
